: engine died

Have a 96 STS that left me stranded. It started, drove about 3 feet and died like you turned the key off. I still have headlights, radio and door locks so I don't think the battery died. Other than that, its just like it has a dead batt. turn the key and theres nothing. No noise or anything. I checked all the fuses on the 3 panels. Any ideas? Thanks

My brother's 97 lost a ground. It died and threw a bunch of codes. His would crank but not start. Finding the bad ground fixed everything. Check voltages at the fuses, you can get contact next to the fuses, you can check the voltage without taking them out.

Is it throwing any codes?
